♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: welcome back, everybody! thank you for watching our program. if you watch our show, you know i use twitter a lot. and sometimes on twitter, these weird lists get started. it's like a topic with a pound sign in front of it. on twitter, they call it a hash tag. well, anyway, we've been making our own hash tags on the show lately. and i thought we'd try it again tonight. a little earlier i srted a hash tag called, "my coworker is weird." i tweeted out, "he's 27 years old, and he's never eaten a salad. he says he'll be ready in 2011."
that's true, dietch. yeah. he said that he can see himself eating a baby spinach salad th chicken and goat cheese in the year 2011. [ laughter ] he's a weird dude, 27 years old. so this is where youuys come in. go on twitter, tweet out something about something weird or something your weird co-worker did or something. and be sure to include the hash tag, "my co-worker is weird." i'll look at all of them. put some on the show torrow night. so, tune in, you might see your tweet on the show. it'll be fun. [ cheers and applause ] it'll be a good time. we're getting into the heart of fall, one of my favorite times of the year. if you're like me, when the leaves start to turn, and you feel a little chill in the air, you just want to curl up with a mug of hot cider and a book. of course, you don't want to be stuck reading a terrib book. that's why i've put together a list of books that you should stay away from. that's right. it's time for my fall "do not read" list. [ cheers and applaus] ♪
and before we get intohis, there's one thing you need to know, every book on this list is 100% real. i'm serious, these are actual books. you can walk into a bookstore, go to amazon, check them out. they are real. all right, let's see what's on my "do not read" list. this first one here is for all of you exotic pet lovers out there. it's "how to care for your giant african land snail." [ laughter ] by lucie mann. i can't tell you how many of these things i've had at home. you take them home, throw some ribs in there, have them suck on ribs, and they just die. you win them at a carnival. throw a ping-pong ball in a -- "how to care for your giant african land snail." >> steve: i remember when you won at at that carnival. >> jim: it was a weird carnival, too. >> steve: 50 gallon jug. >> jimmy: this next one kind of ird's me out. "embalming is not a sport." [ laughter ] by arlin menager. nobody said it was, arlin. [ laughter ] i cannot think of even one single personho considers embalming to be remotely
sport-like. so why are you talking about it like it might ? that'd be the worst sport ever. "we've got a sold out crowd today, three of us here. next up on the field is john -- this guy's the tiger woods of enbalming. no body pumps more pounds of preservatives into a cadaver like the gelman. i'm excited to see what he's got in store for us today." "embalming is not a sport." i was browsing at the bookstore recently and this book caught my eye re. i think you'll understand why. "natural bust enlargement with total mind power" by donald l. wion md. yeah, this method sounds very promising. i wonder how it works. this explains it down here. "how to use the other 90% of your mind to incree the size of your breasts." [ laughter ] really? 90% doesn't sound like total mind power to me. what's the other 10% doing? probably wishing you didn't spend $10 on this piece of jk. what nd of doctor writes a book like this, too? can you imagine if this guy was your doctor? you go in for an appointment. he's like, "hey, have you read my new bk?" you're like, "no, what is it?" he hands you ts. and then it's li, yeah, it's time for a new doctor.
[ laughter ] this is -- thank you. thanks, doctor. i got this book for some friends of mine. they have a kid that's kind of hard to handle. "your 3-year-old: friend or enemy?" [ laughter ] by louise bates ames and frances l. itg. [ cheers and applause ] your friend or enemy? >> steve: nothing unhealthy about that. >> jimmy: nothing unhealthy about it. >> steve: not at all. >> jimmy: i don't know. look at this kid's picture. he's probably both. [ laughter ] >> steve: he might be a frenemy. jimmy: well hprobably was your friend and then you gave him that bowl hair cut. [ laughter ] not his fe is a living hell. he was like the kid you bring on a sitcom when it's starting to go down. >> steve: exactly. oliver. [ lauger ] i'm thinking oliver. >> jimmy: we just adopted a kid. >> steve: oh, really? how cute. >> jimmy: yeah. cancelled. this nexone is perhaps the worst birthday gift anyone has ever given me. "shipping semen? how to have a successful experience." [ audience ohs ] by penniahmed.
love that the title is posed as a question. "you shipping semen?" "yeah, why, yeah. how'd you know?" [ laughter ] lo at the fonts on this thing. looks like microsoft word using the 12 font that came with the mac. it's like, underlined, "how to have a successful experience." i've got to show you guys the back cover too. this is a little ridiculous. it's a single set of human footprints in the sand. what does that have to do with anything with semen -- shipping semen. [ laughter ] i'm missing something. >> steve: his about sailors, maybe? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: it might be a wa novel. >> steve: might be a -- herman wouk. >> jimmy: yeah. anyway, the best part is the front of the depressed horse on the cover. [ laughter ] he's like -- he's on his knees. he got stuck with some amateur handling his semen. "supsed to take that semen, put it in the back of the truck, you won't believe what happened. the hell's angels jumped me. they took all my semen. it was such an unsuccessful experience.
i wish someone could just tell me how to have a successful experience." >> steve: shipping semen. >> jimmy: we're down to our last book here. this ones a doozy. it's a book for kids. although, i'm not sure that kids should be reading it. "why do i vomit?" [ laughter ] by angela royston. there you go. why do you vomit, i'll tell you, buddy. you vomit for the same reason i did when i was your age. i snuck into my parents' liquo cabinet, went a little overboard on the peppermint scnapps. that's probably why you're vomiting. [ light laughter ] i know this sounds really weird you guys. but, this photo was taken 15 years ago. i think this kid is actually right here in our audience tonight. can we see if we can find him? buddy, are you -- how are you buddy?
